Taslima akter L.

Taslima akter L.

Business Analyst and Professional Writer.

Bangladesh - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 5

An experienced entrepreneur and venture capitalist, who enjoys helping fellow entrepreneurs, build their companies. Primarily interested in helping early stage start-ups build their business plan, raise funding, and recruit a team. Specializing in Open Source strategy and business models that leverage Open Source. My strengths are in navigating the spaces between technical concepts and business value to help with both customer and internal needs. I began my career with the chemical product development job that was exactly what I wanted out of college. As I began interacting with other departments I discovered, to my surprise, that business was actually interesting and was intrigued by the web of interconnections. To make what I designed in the lab actually useful (and profitable) instead of just cool it had to be something that the customers could use. The marketing and sales team needed to communicate those benefits in a way that resonated. The manufacturing side needed to be able to make it with consistent quality. And it all had to fit within the overall strategy of the company. I earned my MBA as a step into this larger world and began to build on some of what I learned by studying copy-writing and taking on freelance writing jobs. I was excited to get my first sales job to put into practice what I had been studying and work directly with customers. Currently I am helping manufacturers and scientific laboratories with which grades of filter paper and other media will work for their processes or product development. Specialties: Business plan development, Financing pitch development, Fundraising, senior executive recruiting, Open Source Licensing, Marketing and advertising, Social network development, Brand recognition

Seasoned transcriptionist/editor and creative writer; goal-driven

Philippines - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

I am a goal-directed professional with a strong medical and general transcription background and education. Major strengths include: Comprehensive medical/PT knowledge, broad transcription experience, client/personal relations, flexible/adaptable/assertive, documentation/writing. I have acquired a training certificate as a transcriptionist and eventually promoted to editor in the first transcription company that i worked in. Afterwhich, I became QA/manager to a local transcription company. I have also been transcribing quite a lot of webinars, meetings, and call conferences lately. With a speed of generally 60 wpm and with more than a hundred odesk work hours, I believe I have evolved into an efficient and credible provider.As I am a transcriptionist, I believe that also makes a good writer, because these two require the same skills of having the capacity to efficiently produce work that shows an excellent comprehension of the english language, including spelling and sentence building. To become better, if not the best, at what I do, I am currently taking a few units to complete a master's degree in creative writing.

Traci Talbot

Creative Travel and Adult Content Writer

South Africa - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

I have 3 great loves in my life - Travel, Writing and Reading. I have an insatiable hunger for all 3 and feel incredibly blessed that I am able to skillfully incorporate them into my life and to make them the basis of my creative career choice. I am very fortunate to have traveled rather extensively around the world and as such I am well acquainted with the concept of luxury and lifestyle travel. I have lived in Germany, Switzerland and New York City and whilst these experiences have been wonderful I am nevertheless a true South African who considers myself extremely blessed to be able to call Cape Town my home. For the greater part of the last ten years I have worked within the South African travel industry and now, due to my love and passion for various vacation places across the Western Cape, I now run a small boutique travel company that specialises in the creation and building of personalised holiday travel itineraries. The aspect of my career choice that I love the most is my immense hunger to discover new, interesting and non-commercial 'gems' - those intimate and unusual South African destinations that once visited it would seem after leaving that you, as the visitor, have left a special part of your soul there. Magical places, romantic places and places that inspire. I gain such an enormous amount of pleasure when I have the privilege of knowing that I have introduced people to a location and/or destination that will leave a memory that lasts a lifetime. It is these secret spaces in special places that I'd like to write about to appeal to the vacationers that are searching for that little bit of something different, something extra, something unusual and more importantly, something special. The destinations and locations that I have found over the years are not limited to only accommodations - I have also discovered incredible restaurants, tours and other travel related wonders.
